What’s Love Got to Do with It?

Art imitates life in What’s Love Got to Do with It? a 2022 British romantic comedy-drama film directed by Shekhar Kapur, from a screenplay by Jemima Khan.  The precis reads: ‘Set between London and Lahore, a filmmaker documents her childhood friend and neighbour’s arranged marriage to a bride from Pakistan.’

Thank you, Aslan for your editorial. The public are to suffer a great deal in the future if all issues are to be ‘shuffled’ by the NSW government’s various departments. Recent reports on ABC TV on the floods in Forbes have revealed that insurance companies have withdrawn from any compensation for future flood victims. This includes residents on high land according to the mayor of Forbes.

We may well ask will ‘West Byron and Arts and Industry Estate residents, businesses etc expect the same?’

The West Byron development continues with more questions than answers surrounding it. Why are risk factors and consequences so completely ignored by Byron Council?  They seem to hide behind the skirts of the NSW government and be obedient children rather than diligent mature representative adults!
